Vampires don't need to drink blood to live, per-se, but the blood meal provides them with a short period of telepathy during which they can see themselves as their victim sees them -- important for someone who can't use mirrors or cameras. Because vampire attacks are traumatic, this usually sends them deeper into self-loathing. Often, codependent vampire couples pop up -- drinking in idolized fantasy versions of themselves. Vampires with large social safety nets (usually mostly composed of humans, because vampires -- being born, not made -- tend to be pretty screwed up from an extended childhood where they can't see themselves & can't leave the house during daylight) can avoid drinking blood entirely because their trusted friends provide them with a sense of identity, but once those friends start dying off they start attacking out of desperation. In this world where vampires can only die by suicide, few last more than a few centuries. So, our protagonist begins a talk-therapy and group-therapy service for vampires.

Long Hunter, a sword-wielding drifter, navigates her way through the bandit-filled post-nuclear hellscape between small autonomous settlements, her only companion being her fast-talking overly-sarcastic penis -- who is also her ultimate weapon, when she can convince it to open its tripartate jaws and emit its long, barbed tongue to encapsulate and devour her enemies. The penis is only conscious when erect, and so she has become a master of meditation: capable of shifting activation from sympathetic to parasympathetic nervous system even during the heat of battle.

A retelling of Dracula where Lucy is an idol, Mina is her otaku friend who she secretly is into, Dracula is a VC who's buying up prime Tokyo real estate & has convinced himself that turning the whole world into vampires is inevitable & therefore he should accelerate the process. After turning, Lucy ends up literally preying on her fans in order to avoid eating Mina, while graduating from hidden crush to a Carmilla type relationship. Lucy's managers don't tell anybody she's dead, of course, and just try to subtly shift her fans to other groups. So, of course they are concerned when she does unscheduled performances on her own -- leaving none of the attendees alive! Lucy and Mina team up to fight Dracula. Van Hellsing is an anon -- he never actually shows up, and instead just gives them advice based on his medical background and extensive otaku knowledge of pop-culture vampire media.

Anime where all conflicts are settled with rap battles
I'd watch the fuck out of this. Three quarters of shonen fighting anime battles are just people yelling snide remarks at each other interspersed with infodump flashbacks anyway, so why not remove the punching altogether? (Battle anime about cooking competitions have become extremely popular so it's not like this is an unproven premise.)

Elvis, despite everything, is an A-list celebrity, although his impersonators may be C-list. I'm talking about people who professionally impersonate the lead actors in Asylum titles, people who were rejected in the first episode of reality TV shows, people used as examples during presidential election campaigns, the spokespeople for RC-level soda brands, or youtube personalities with 10k subscribers.

While his squad is investigating an insurgent attack on an archaeological dig, a soldier with a macabre sense of humor finds a notebook on the corpse of an anthropologist describing ancient funerary cannibalism practices from a culture that believed eating the brain of the deceased allows their spirits to possess the living. When one of his squadmates gets killed, he tries it, jokingly, but it works. Later, more and more of them are killed, even ultimately in their bunks, and he eats each one, until he discovers that the first squadmate has been possessing his body in order to get revenge on the rest of the group for not protecting him properly.

Horror film about a Jesus-like reverse vampire that shoots blood at people's faces from holes in it's hands and if it gets in their mouths and they swallow any they turn into one themselves

A wealthy adventurer forms a party around himself to quest to defeat some ancient demon king, but as the story progresses it becomes clear that, out of a warped sense of sportsmanship and a huge overestimation of the ability of the party, this adventurer has hired mercenary bands to make their quest more difficult. His arc is coming to terms with the fact that an adventurer's life is actually serious -- these tasks are life-or-death risks -- and when the stakes are so high, misplaced chivalry is tantamount to being a traitor.
